YHC was excited to return for a Q at Jericho - we were light on HCs, but it's always great to be surprised with a bunch of PAX ready to get after it!  Pre-runners coming in and Simple Jack following YHCs standard arrival protocol and off we went!


Mosey around the parking lot to visit the old tried and true warm up spot...the Shaft!  It's been like 3 or 4 years since the fabled graffiti artwork was removed, but it just doesn't feel right to call it anything else!  Warm-ups, all IC: Weed Pickers Hillbillies Windmills Side Straddle Hops  

The Thang:

Mosey down the big hill to the lower football fields for a Death Star: 6 points around the perimeter of the field each have a station.  Sprint to the corners, bear crawl to the sides - return to the middle of the field after every station and pay a toll of 3 burpees Round 1:  25 reps / Round 2:  20 reps Mountain Climbers (alpha) Wide Mercans Big Boi Sit ups Star jumps Jungle Boi Squats Reverse LBCs Mosey out to the bleachers for: Deep Knee Bend Extensions (10 each leg) Dips (15) Incline Mercans (15) Mosey halfway up the hill and stop for 25 LBCs in cadence Stop at the coupon pile for some Colt 45s: Curls OHP Rows  


  • Yard clean up project at Napalm's house Sunday afternoon at 1:30 PM
  • Luck of the Irish Challenge underway - so far 7 PAX have claimed the Week 1 Clover with Jugdish Maintaining a slim margin.  Still many ways to join the list and don't forget that there is a surprise Challenge at the end to make up for any weeks you fall just a bit short of the goal

Naked-Man Moleskin:

March is always a great month!  It represents the emergence from the bleakness of winter with warm temps, things beginning to bloom, and an extra hour of daylight to extend your acceleration.  It's the perfect month to spring forward and there are numerous challenges/ races, etc. to jump into and keep your motivation level high!  I've said it before and I'll continue to beat the drum...if you wait until you think you're ready, you'll never get there.  Pick a challenge, commit to it, and you'll figure out how to get ready for it!  There are many in our group who are happy to come alongside of you and show you the way!
